2 Mission Statement The College of Education s mission is to prepare teacher candidates to be reflective practitioners who are knowledgeable, collaborative professionals. They will have a rich knowledge of content with an understanding of how people learn in various ways combined with the ability to apply that knowledge to assure student success. Goals The College of Education educates pre-service teachers who embrace student-centered learning, maintain a comprehensive knowledge of content knowledge, possess an excellent foundation of professional and pedagogical knowledge, and model social justice through social responsibility. Our graduates are able to do this through adherence to institutional, state, and national standards that support the conceptual framework. Graduates from the College of Education at Athens State will have the knowledge to apply: Disciplinary Knowledge; Professional Knowledge; Pedagogical Knowledge; and the ability to create student-centered learning opportunities and practice socially responsible citizenship. Teacher Education Program The Teacher Education Program at Athens State University promotes professional development of students who seek teaching as a career, students who will become Reflective Practitioners. The program is approved by the Alabama State Department of Education and accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Students are advised and assisted in each phase of their preparation program. The College of Education offers undergraduate degrees leading to Class B Certification in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Elementary/Collaborative K-6 Education, Physical Education, Special Education K-6, 6-12 (Collaborative Teacher), and Technical Education. The College of Education also offers secondary certification in the following College of Arts and Sciences programs through a minor in Education: Art, Biology, Chemistry, English/Language Arts, History, Mathematics and Social Science. The preparation of teachers is built on a liberal arts foundation. Those students preparing for teaching positions in the secondary schools pursue a major through the College of Arts and Sciences with a minor in Education. Teaching certification requirements are completed through the College of Education. Students preparing to teach special education/collaborative, early childhood, and elementary education concentrate on subject matter relevant to the major. Those who are preparing to teach physical education pursue a broad program appropriate to both elementary and secondary schools. Students in the technical education program are preparing to teach their specialized skill areas. All groups complete their programs with specific and appropriate professional courses. All programs are designed to assist students in acquiring knowledge and abilities to become teachers who participate in positive interactions, show respect for self and others, exhibit interest in the learner and the learning process, assume responsibility, exhibit stewardship of diversity, advocate use of technology, and exhibit fairness and the belief that all students can learn. Faculty model varied methods, strategies and techniques. Students demonstrate attainment of knowledge and skills in campus-based classes and field-based settings. Students will develop an electronic professional portfolio that reflects evolving professional growth and the ability to integrate general learning, subject matter, professional and pedagogical studies. The College of Education conducts follow-up studies of graduates in an effort to assess teaching effectiveness and to secure data vital to future planning and development and offers special assistance to beginning teachers. s that require admission to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) are not accepted as transfer credit (no exceptions). The State of Alabama articulation agreement requires the University to accept other courses taken at community colleges if such courses satisfy requirements specified for a given degree program. Changes to the requirements of the Teacher Education Program may occur at any time due to certification changes made by the State Department of Education. Students are advised to check updated program of study forms for these changes. Students seeking a degree that leads to certification through a College of Education program, or a College of Arts and Sciences program with a minor in Education, are required to be fingerprinted and ABI/FBI cleared for the Alabama State Department of Education. The student shall be issued a suitability determination from the State Superintendent of Education. The student must provide the Teacher Education Services Department documentation of having cleared the criminal history background check prior to admission to a State-approved teacher education program. A student whose suitability determination precludes admission to a State-approved teacher education program has the right to due process procedures in accordance with Alabama State Department of Education Rules.

3 Field Experience Field experience, a requirement of the Alabama State Department of Education, is an invaluable opportunity to observe and be involved in real life teaching situations. During P-12 school visits students will learn pedagogy and management strategies and, in some instances, be allowed to practice their teaching skills. For additional information about field experience visit the University website: Professional Review Board A Professional Review Board composed of education faculty members meets periodically to review unsatisfactory performance and progress of students referred by faculty members. Actions that can cause students to be referred to the Professional Review Board include but are not limited to the following: an unacceptable score on a Professional Disposition, or removal of student from field experience and/or internship. Certain actions or misconduct may be violations of the Student Code of Conduct, and may be subject to the disciplinary procedures of the Code. For additional information, see the Student Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures. Admission into the Teacher Education Program (TEP) Students seeking a degree that leads to certification through a College of Education program, or a College of Arts and Sciences program with a minor in Education, must apply and be accepted into the Teacher Education Program (TEP). Students applying for admission into the TEP Program must meet the all TEP admission requirements. No more than five courses in the Professional Education Requirements of the program of study may be completed before admittance to the TEP Program., Check plan of study for approved courses. s that require admission to the TEP Program are not accepted as transfer credit (no exceptions). For additional information about the Teacher Education Program (TEP) visit the University website: Students must demonstrate academic competence in the required content.

Students seeking certification who are not admitted to the Teacher Education Program and who register for courses that require admission will be withdrawn from the course by the College of Education. Internship (Student Teaching) The professional Internship Program for interns bridges the gap between theory and practice. The Internship experience is regarded as the most significant laboratory experience in teacher preparation. It is regarded as a period of learning for the intern under the supervision of the classroom teacher, local school, and an Athens State University supervisor. Successful completion of the internship course is required for graduation. For additional information about Internship visit the University website: Certification The State Board of Education periodically revises the requirements governing certification in the State of Alabama. Therefore, requirements for degrees leading to certification are subject to change from those published in this catalog. Students are advised to secure a current plan of study from their advisor(s) to ensure that degree requirements and certification requirements are met. Issuance of Alabama teaching certificates is the legal responsibility of the Alabama State Department of Education. Universities and colleges cannot issue a professional certificate. However, in order to be certified at the professional B level, a student must complete an appropriate plan of study at a college or university which has been approved by the State Department of Education. When a student completes the plan of study, the institution recommends to the State Department of Education that the appropriate certificate be awarded. For additional information about certification through Athens State University visit the University website: A student cannot be recommended for certification based on completion of a program for which State approval expired more than seven years prior to the date of program completion. Praxis II Requirements Students seeking a degree that leads to certification through a College of Education program, or a College of Arts and Sciences program with a minor in Education, and subsequent licensure and certification by the State of Alabama, are required to pass the appropriate Praxis II exams for their program of study. A complete listing of these exams along with required scoring information can be reviewed on the College of Education s webpage.

Distance Education The College of Education offers one online degree: the Bachelor of Science in Education -Technical Education: Instructional Design. All coursework for this major may be completed via distance learning. For further information regarding distance education, refer to the Academic Policies section in the Introduction and General Information portion of the catalog or the University website. Transfer of Academic Credit College of Education and College of Arts & Sciences with a minor in Education Transferred courses and/or credits used to meet approved program requirements in professional studies, instructional support, or other approved program requirements (other than general education courses and Arts and Sciences courses used to meet academic major requirements) must have been completed at a regionally accredited institution that prepares teachers on the same degree level of certification. The College of Education has designated specific courses in which transfer courses and/or credits are not accepted. For a complete list of these courses refer to College of Education website: s, credits, and/or degrees accepted from institutions outside the United States shall be substantiated by an evaluation of the foreign credentials from a state, federal, or private foreign credential evaluation service recognized by the Alabama State Department of Education Teacher Education and Certification Office. The evaluation must show that courses, credits, and/or degrees were earned at an institution equivalent to a regionally accredited institution in the United States. Remedial coursework is not accepted for transfer and cannot be used to meet program requirements. It may, however, fulfill prerequisite requirements, if applicable. If an individual completes a Class B program at an institution and wants to return to the same institution for a new Class B program, professional studies courses common to both approved checklists are not subject to the five-course limit. However, if the individual has taken more than five professional studies courses on the checklist of the second program, no additional professional studies courses may be taken prior to unconditional admission.
